Hi Wayne,

I ran into the same problem.
AFAIK it is not solved yet. Not sure about 1.2.2 cvs. Have to check.

The quickest workaround is to duplicate the corresponding stylesheet 
and increase the indent value. Then, apply that style to the 
paragraph in cause.

For some reason, Scribus still calculates the indent from the left 
side of the text frame although the rest of the text is correctly 
pushed away by the overlapping object. So, simply increasing the 
value of the indent does the trick.

Not super-efficient, but it works. :)
